GAF Roofing by michelewestcott


									GAF Roofing

GAF roofing is a roofing system manufactured
exclusively by GAF Materials Corporation. The
GAF in its name stands for General Aniline and
Film and it was originally founded on 1886 as
the Standard Paint Company.
The company started by primarily
manufacturing roofing materials for
commercial and residential use. It has since
then diversified into other products such as
fiber-cement siding, metal ductwork and
specialty fabrics. There was even a time that
GAF was manufacturing photographic film
being used by cameras and film projectors. It
was even considered as the official film of
Disneyland during the 1970s.
It introduced its first product, Ruberoid®,
which is fairly comparable to rubber and kept
in an easy-to-use rolls. This ready-to-lay
asphalt roofing system changed the way of
how roofs were installed.
The success of Ruberoid® was unparalleled
that the company name was changed to the
Ruberoid Company in 1921 but was eventually
changed to GAF Materials Corporation in 1967
upon its merger. However, Ruberoid® still
continues to be the country’s foremost trusted
name in commercial and residential roofing

The actual cost of the GAF roofing system
would depend on your where you get it from
so it is important to research first the range of
cost prior to signing on to a deal. Here is an
estimated pricing range -
• The three tab shingle cost around $2 to $3 per
  square foot and the average roof measures
  about 2,000 square foot. This brings your
  estimated cost from $2000 to $6000.
• The Timberline shingles would cost around $3
  to $5 per square foot so for an average house,
  it can cost you $6,000 to $10,000.
• Designer shingles are a little costlier at $4 to
  $6 per square foot and it will roughly cost you
  $8,000 to $12,000.
The costing does not cover installation and
this is extremely variable but the average cost
of installation is around $150 per 100 square
foot. The average size house can set you back
around $3000 for installation alone. However,
if you have existing roofing prior to installation,
there will be an additional charge to remove
and dispose of the old roofing and this can
cost around $2,000 to $8,000.
